Superfood Sundays, September 9th, 2012

Welcome to the eleventh edition of Superfood Sunday Blog Carnival.  I started it on Superbowl Sunday 2012 because I live in Indianapolis, and we hosted our very first Superbowl, and the city was bathed in a bit of a festive frenzy at that moment. 

Going with the Superbowl Sunday theme, I decided to start Superfood Sunday, a blog carnival focusing on recipes featuring superfoods fit for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. There are a couple of rules, so be certain to read through them before posting so I won't have to delete the link.

1.  Keep the ingredients nourishing. If you want the complete lowdown, visit the diet page, but a quick synopsis requires your recipes to use whole grains, meats, legumes, beans, unrefined salt, and sugars. Stay away from processed foods (no fake foods, margarine, vegetable oils, processed sugar, etc.) 

2. Link back to the carnival. This is common carnival courtesy. When I was new to blog carnivals, I didn't know how to link back to the carnival. Your blog should have a link button on the posting page, and you can add a simple link at the bottom of your post stating this is a blog you are linking your post up with.  

3. Leave comments. I read all of my comments, and visitors tend to as well. Leave an interesting comment about your piece and a link back to the post, and that will send more traffic your way. Don't have a blog?  Comments are a great way to share your own pregnancy and breastfeeding superfood tips, and I would love to read them.

4. Follow this site, like it, pin it on pinterest... This is by no means a requirement, but I love to see who is interested in keeping up with my natural pregnancy and breastfeeding site!!

I shared my Grain-free Salmon Rolls and an article about why going gluten-free is just not enough!

Check out my new online cooking class: go grain-free
